Flight 666 flies last ever trip to HEL on Friday the 13th

What's more, the flight departed 20 minutes after the 13 hour of the day, but today's flight will be the last of 21 times FinnAir has flown the route on Friday 13 since 2006. The airline declined to comment on whether the change had been made with concerned or superstitious passengers in mind.

Finnair said that it successfully operated 21 Friday 13 flights from Copenhagen to Helsinki with the unfortunate number over a period of 11 years.

Finnair said the flight marked the final time Flight 666 will make the trip on a Friday the 13th, as a reordering of flight data is causing the flight to be renumbered to 954.

"As of Oct 29th, some of our flight numbers in our network will change and our AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to AY954".

Today marks the day the Nordic airline has chose to retire the number after flying more than 21 times on Friday 13 since 2006.
